WireService.ca Press Release (04/13/2014)

Narconon Trois-Rivieres threatened human rights victims with bankruptcy if all 3 plaintiffs did not agree to a fraction of the moral and punitive damages proposed in a Quebec Human Rights Commission resolution decision.

According to the Commission, Narconon Trois-Rivieres attorneys provided information regarding the financial situation of Narconon -- judgments ordered against Narconon totaling over half a millions dollars (mostly for unpaid income taxes).

Also, Narconon did not want to negotiate "individually"-- they demanded three victim settlements or nothing, and would declare bankruptcy so that any case the Commission filed with a Quebec Court would be moot.

On or about, February 14, 2014, three Plaintiffs and Narconon Trois-Rivieres, received notice of the Human Rights Commission resolution decision, requesting that the respondent, Narconon Trois-Rivières abide by a deadline proposed measure of redress, on or before Friday, March 21, 2014 at 3 p.m.

Narconon was given more than one month to respond to the Commission's request, but failed, pleading for a two week extension. Narconon stone-walled the process once again, not responding to the Commission lawyer until approximately 4:55 pm on Friday afternoon, March 21, 2014.

Narconon offered the victims about 20% of the damages, and demanded a 'Non-Disclosure Agreement' from all three victims or it was no deal. The victims would never be allowed to discuss or reveal the abuses, exploitation, and human rights violations they experienced while at Scientology's drug rehab center in Quebec.

Notable, is Scientology's own 'Citizens Commission on Human Rights,' established in 1969, were violating their own statements:

"From the CCHR International website, the current President of the CCHR says, and I quote, "Our work aligns with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which reads in part: "No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. All are equal before the law and are entitled, without any discrimination, to equal protection of the law."

In addition to other atrocities, the Quebec Human Rights Commission was of the opinion that the evidence before it at the end of the investigation regarding the allegations of exploitation, and notably, the documentary and testimonial evidence established that the respondent contributed to the financial exploitation of the victims.

It was a scathing verdict that included Charter violations under the ACT that included, but not limited to:

- Charging considerable amounts for a detoxification program which was not scientifically approved and which involved health and safety hazards.

- Failing to provide care suited to medical conditions, despite the sums paid.

- Providing information, before and during treatment, which could be misleading as to the likelihood of a successful outcome, and which gave the impression that the results [TREATMENT] were guaranteed.

- Charging large sums for a service provided by unqualified people.

- Forcing patients to work and perform various tasks without pay.

- Forcing patients to submit to humiliating and degrading practices.

- Failing to properly bear the responsibility for confidential information obtained from the complainants after prompting them to open up about personal aspects of their life.

- Using controversial teaching methods that were not based on any scientific study.

- Submitting patients to poor living and food conditions.

- Submitting forced confinement and coercion.

Scientology's drug rehabs, Narconon, are also under investigation or facing lawsuits in Georgia, Oklahoma, Nevada, and California - indeed, becoming a nightmare of sorts, to Scientology's leader, David Miscavige.

Scientology and their front groups are well known around the globe for their litigation stall tactics when facing court hearings and media exposure for crimes and abuses.

Narconon's demand to keep their human rights abuses secret and the horrific details out of the media and public eye, failed once again, and according to the Human Rights Commission lawyer, the victims "have a legal right" to talk to media - thus, exercising their fundamental freedoms, including freedom of conscience, freedom of opinion, freedom of expression, honour and reputation.

Fraud
Fraud, extortion and counsel to break the law has been a common practice in the Scientology organizations.
I was solicited to spy on and extract information from government employees by official staff of scientology. I was defrauded by official staff of the 'church' of scientology. I was counselled as a member of the 'church' to defraud financial institutions.

Narconon, regardless of what it says or promotes is run on the ideas pushed by the 'church' of scientology and many of them are anti-social.

How do I know all this? I was a member for decades, foolishly yes, and if was not for brave and caring individuals as David Love, I would have never broken free of the incredulous lies that are sure to emanate for scientology organizations including it many front groups of which Narconon is just one. I can not warn Canadian government officials and citizens enough. BE aware. If it deals with scientology there will be deception involved as only partially illustrated in one of the largest libel cases in Canada.

True to scientology form, that by what appears as blackmail and further fiduciary shenanigans and oppression of individual rights, scientology leadership just can't stop being criminals and harming anyone they believe is in opposition to the scientology goal to take over society.

Thankfully they are failing to implement the tyranny fostered by their founder L ron hubbard and current leader, David Miscavige and world wide organizations who are currently under a court restraining order, unfortunately only in Texas.

I am very embarrassed to have revealed that I was ever a member of scientology, yet I greatly thank David and others for their courage in stepping up to the plate and making it easier for others such as myself to also step forward. Our culture will be better for his actions.

Thank you again David
